hp gain is negligible as an only mod, but it would help more with an upgraded exhaust. install is easy as pie, took me about 2 hours putzing around. if you got to it and didn't take a break, it'll easily be done in under 1.5 hours.
i've got them for sale for 245 shipped same day payment is recieved. pm me
I got one. Install wasnt to bad, even for me and my limited hands on experience. Judging my my ass dynos, Id say 8-12 hp gain. Keep in mind my ass dyno isnt 100% dialed in. I also have a exhaust so keep what vita said in mind... results may vary
I didn't notice much of a power gain on mine, but the car does seems to breathe easier. Install wasn't hard I did mine in about 2 hours but I was defenintly taking my time. It comes with a nice set of directions that have a picture for every step.
My favorite part about the intake is the WHHHIIIIINNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE.
Its not too bad. More of a pain in the ass to install it than hard to install. I would allow 2 hours so you can take your time and do it right. I dont think the performance gain is anything worth writing home about. I can say that shiny silver pipe coming off the side of the motor does look pretty impressive when you po the hood.
Just a little insight here guys. When I put the CAI on my firebird I was very dissapointed that I did not feal much of a difference. Got it out to the track though and I had picked up .3 on my ET and 2 MPH on my trap.
There's a difference, I can't put it into numbers, but the feel of the car in certain situations is different. The front end feels a little looser when you're getting near redline, and the wheels slip a little in 2nd if you dont have great traction. That's as unbiased as I can be... I don't want to say 12hp at 5500 rpms or anything...
